Home Children Parents Nursery Contact

Since most of this section is about money we thought we’d try and balance it with a bit of food for the soul!

Like children, parents come in all shapes and sizes.  They also come in many different nationalities and in a rainbow of cultures and religions.  So whether you’re a Mum or Dad, step Mum, adoptive Dad, guardian, foster Mum, a Tata, Aabe or Maman you’ll receive a warm welcome at Sevenoaks Day Nursery.

You’ll become part of the Nursery family and, as much as we focus on the children, we are very aware that a good relationship with you will help us do our best for your child.

So, please take time to chat to your child’s key worker when you’re dropping off or collecting.  Chat to your child’s Room Manager.  Chat to the Nursery Manager.  Our staff have over 130 years’ experience of Nursery parents, their children and their problems.  We would never suggest that we have all the answers, but with your cooperation we may be able to help find them.

Of course, there’s more to a good relationship than solving problems, so we’re happy to learn about the good things too!  Tell us about your child’s successes and yours.

And should you wish to get more involved, there are always opportunities.  We are a charity, our fees are well below average and we provide a lot of free or discounted childcare for those in need, so we’re always fund raising.

Keep an eye on our news page for forthcoming events, Notices, news etc.

Welcome to the Family!


Your children are not your children.
They are the sons and daughters of Life’s longing for itself.
They come through you but not from you,
And though they are with you yet they belong not to you.

You may give them your love but not your thoughts,
For they have their own thoughts.
You may house their bodies but not their souls,
For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow,
which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
You may strive to be like them,
but seek not to make them like you.
For life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday.

You are the bows from which your children
as living arrows are sent forth.
The archer sees the mark upon the path of the infinite,
and He bends you with His might
that His arrows may go swift and far.
Let your bending in the archer’s hand be for gladness;
For even as He loves the arrow that flies,
so He loves also the bow that is stable

On Children, Khalil Gibran
